Care to explain how you got your screen name?

How did you discover ivillage?

How long have you been an ivillage message board user/lurker?

When I discovered the message boards, I mainly looked up child related things. I spent the bulk of my time on child sites, so I became tracywithtwo, for my two kids. As time went on, I moved away from the kids sites, and only play on the food sites. Believe it or not, I heard about ivillage from my dad. He heard about the parentsoup message boards from his secretary. That was around January 2002. In playing around myself, I found the food sites. I have been a regular on Q and E since spring of 2002.

How interesting - - I had a feeling the "two" meant 2 kids! My name (stracy1) is just a combination of my first initial (S) and my middle name and the number 1....not terribly creative.(lol)


I really just stumbled into I-village - - I think back then I was looking for decorating ideas and household management kind of stuff. Then, I could not take smoking anymore and quit smoking on Nov 8, 2002....the first I-village board I began posting on was the Break the Smoking Habit Board....I truly owe my new-found health to that board and the Wonderful ladies on that board who literally nursed me through those first few months. I would Never have been able to quit smoking (a 25 year habit) without those people and their almost 24 hours of support. That board no longer exists, but I am so glad that it was there for me. Now, I hang out a lot on the Fitness and Health board and I've just started coming here...I think it's cause now that I don't smoke - - Food is a LOT MORE Important!(lol).

My screen name was suggested by my daughter. I also use it for AIM (that's where i started it). She suggested it because I love daisies. The 526 is my birthday (May 26).

I started visiting iVillage when i was searching for some help for my husband. He was injured at work and worker's compensation was giving us a hard time. Somehow the iVillage Worker's Compensation Board came up on a search and that is the first board I posted on. They were a great bunch of ladies. The board is no longer in existance because it merged with the Social Security Disability board. But one day i noticed that iVillage had a food section and was hooked ever since. I started being cl on the HOlidays, Decorating and Gift Ideas board when it was posted that it needed a cl. I was alone on that board for a few months and then I got a partner (Sher) and then that board merged with the Showers & Parties board and because Holidays & Parties.

Shortly after that, it was posted that Quick & Easy needed a cl so I volunteered since it was my favorite (besides Holidays & Parties.. lol). So, now I'm co-cl on both. I started with the Holiday board about 4-5 years ago and started with Q&E about 2-3 years ago and i love it.

Girl..... CONGRATULATION!!!!!! I am so happy that you quit smoking! My grandfather died of lung cancer and the dr. told me it was a direct result of him smoking. I also seen a smoker's lung once here at the hospital and it sure steered me away from the habit. I know that you did a great thing by quitting.... i am SO glad that I never took up smoking because if I had, i don't rightly know if i would have been able to stop. I am such a wuss... lol

My screen name is self-explanatory, half the time I'm not sure if I'm coming or going. I found ivillage about 2 years ago, when following a link for a freebie, explored around a bit and found the food and cooking boards. I love them and have got lots of ideas and suggestions for them.
